Carrie Fisher Wants To Get Leia Right For Episode VII
Jay Cochran - May 29, 2014


According to the BBC, actress Carrie Fisher recently spoke at the Hay Festival in Wales where she said that she wanted to "get Leia right" for the upcoming Episode VII movie which brings her Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill back to a Galaxy Far Far Away...

The 57 year old actress who was only 19 when she was originally cast for the role said she, "I think less British. I looked a little pretentious faking the accent.". She went on to joke and say that she and her fellow actors , "all look a little melted". "It is good to have us all in a room because it's unique. I mean, I don't suppose they have reunions for the Gone With The Wind gang," she continued.

"I think people should be forced to do it 30 years on, classic films that they had, either to make another film or put together an anecdote."

She also mentioned that she would be revisting her classic Princess Leia hairstyle with the two buns on the side of her head.



The film which is being directed by J.J Abrams will star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow along with the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. Production on the film has begun and it is slated to open in theaters from Disney on December 18, 2015.

    I am excited at the possibility, no matter how minute, of Luke Skywalker taking center stage again.     I highly doubt "center stage" because they have to get us hooked on the new characters going forward.  But I will settle for "strong presence". &#... read more

what are the mysteries?      C-3PO's red arm.   The path of the lightsaber to Crunchy Cookie Face.   The hows and why of the resistance and the first order.   Rey's parentage.   Where and when Darth Maul and Boba Fett will return.   Snookie's identity.  ... read more

        I think the biggest mystery that goes unaddressed by fans is "is all this tedium distracting me from objectively reviewing this movie?"     With the OT being nearly every fanboy's holy grail of movies, I don't know if anyone in the geek community can claim... read more

  Also, just curious, did 3PO's one silver leg in the OT irk you as much as the red arm does?  I guess I don't see much difference.     No, I just think it's funny that they bothered to mention it out loud in the movie.  Didn't he say something about "buying the com... read more

Well, in regards to Starkiller, on the map they've released of the galaxy it sits in the spot occupied on previous maps by Ilum, the planet where Jedi got their lightsaber crystals. So the speculation is that they actually converted Ilum into this weapon. Kind of makes sense quite frankly. That'... read more

 I would have liked it to have been some sort of surprise to the resistance...The planet opens up to reveal the trench/laser..."We were searching for a superweapon orbiting a planet...the planet is a superweapon!"  Blammo!        Yeah, that would have been cool... read more
